My favorite combination is cookies ‘n cream so when I made this cheesecake you can imagine that I was all over it! So over the weekend I really wanted to eat cheesecake but I didn’t want a complicated cheesecake that included a water bath and other crazy things. So I made my favorite basic cheesecake but replaced my graham cracker crust with an Oreo cookie crust and added chopped up Oreo cookies.The Oreo cookies compliment the cheese base really well making an outrageous cheesecake!
